    Another great mix of old and new, Matt! Love the new David Bowie, always a thrill to hear the ‘Mats, and had forgotten what a gem Transistor’s “Everywhere That I’m Not” is–that had me searching for my “Just Say New Wave” CD after the show! Many thanks and keep it up!

  • Ever notice the frequency of reviews of new LPs/bands where the reviewer cites XTC as an influence? … a band which should have been absolutely massive…

    Uh, that would actually be TRANSLATOR’S “Everywhere That I’m Not”! :0
